How much oil should come out of the crank case breather?

Honda tells me that high rpm 4 stroke engines have a lot of oil come out of these... A day of hard riding is enough to run the motor low on oil and ruin it.

I think there talking shit, Crotch Rockets have high rpm, high output 4strokes and they don't use oil.... When I ride certain trails around here yo pretty much stay in the top of third for miles and mine has never used oil like there saying. Thats just there attempt to blow you off.

The crankcase breather ? Sounds like whomever you talked to at Honda needs to put down the pipe !! The main purpose of the breather is emissions control- to recycle crankcase gases caused by piston ring blow-by and to keep crankcase gas pressure at a minumum . You absolutely should NOT be LOSING OIL through the breather. Sounds to me like they're stretching for a good excuse t0 back out of warranty.

This is usually caused by a crank seal going bad at least on the 450.I would also think the rings are going. Just my .02 and experience.

Tell them that is not in any of the Honda literature (owners manual or service manual) and your lawyer wants to see it in writing......

a day of hard riding is enough to run it low? thats a big load of pig crap. my first oil change at 20 hours yielded near 2 quarts. ive got about 30 on it now and the oil level hasnt budged. crankcase breather tube is pretty much dry.

I might could believe that........if it were running upside down.

Are they calling the 700xx a high rpm motor? How fast does this thing spin?

sounds like a bunch of BS to me, I've had almost every kind of small engine there is and have never lost oil from the breather.
